On May 27th WBI Energy (MDU Resources Group company) filed a NGA Section 7 application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). WBI’s filing requests authorization to construct, modify, operate and maintain facilities for its proposed Wahpeton Expansion Project.
FERC is anticipated to issue a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in September with a Final EIS anticipated in January. Late in 2021 WBI conducted public open houses in Wahpeton and Kindred to explain the project. The 60.5 mile 12-inch pipeline will originate at the Mapleton compressor station and deliver 20.6 million cubic feet of natural gas to the Kindred and Wahpeton communities.
This project, which is vital to ProGold’s future, remains on track with an anticipated completion date of November 2024. Additional information may be found at: https://www.wbienergy.com/projects/wahpeton/.
